. >> probably, because now there's a lot more distractions, like more technology and whatnot. >> from what they say, i think it is. i think there's just more that we're exposed to now than there was when we were before. so i think it is harder now. >> um...no. i'm gonna go with no, because, like, well, when my parents were teens, they were, like, the war -- vietnam war and stuff, and their parents were, like, kind of like, "hey, go join the war," and they were kind of like, "mm, no." my dad grew up in brazil, so it's a little bit different there. >> i think it's easier, because our parents, like, couldn't escape from their parents, 'cause they didn't have phones or computers. >> yeah, i do because of the work load. school is a lot harder now, i think. >> i do, because there's a lot more technology around. like, when our parents were teenagers, if they had a problem with people, it was sort of a face-to-face combat issue, but nowadays, you could just do it anonymously, and you can really never know who it's coming from. >> if we put it to a vote, i think most teens would agree that life is
in this innovation space, people matter. like you can build technology you want, platform you want, that's great. it's the people who are doing it that matter and they're going to get stuff done. this has some of the best people, shannon and jay are doing t. they've been doing it awhile so they know what they're doing. it's great. last year i was building this adopted tree app and i found it on the data portal. it had like some weird geo data like it was in some form i couldn't use. i just dropped jay a note and like within 24 hours i got the data fixed and it was perfect. so, it's those kind of relationships that matter and having the right people in place. so, i think the chief data officer, these guys will end up joining a rock star team. >> not a question, but just a comment to say thanks to the city's innovation office. we're a small company from ireland called building i. we take permit data from cities and show it to anyone who wants to see it. we started off in ireland, discovered the san francisco data and came over here and now we've got an office up and running here with san francisco da

, the technology revolution. and one reason i think that it's really pretty clear that those are key drivers is this is a global phenomenon. and i do sometimes think the american discourse about it tends to be very american. so i'm always quite entertained when i read about, you know, a paper that says rising income inequality in the united states is due to this one particular law passed in the 980s. -- 1980s. okay, then how does that account for rising income inequality in canada or, indeed, even in france, in germany, in the united kingdom? i mean, it's happening all over the world, it's also happening in emerging markets. but i think it is important to face that scary because if you see it just as a political phenomenon, you know, you're going to lose sight of what i think is the biggest challenge which is that these, actually, quite benign economic forces, right? i love the technology revolution, i'm a google addict. they're also drivers of social and political consequences which are not quite so benign. the way i like to look at it, and this is a quote from peter orszag, is, you know, h
're extracting record amounts of oil and gas from shale through fracking and other technologies. pushing prices for natural gas which is used in part to generate electricity down. that helps utilities and heavy industry compete. creating more jobs for americans, all of these things put together are sending my runner, the u.s. economy, dashing ever faster down that road toward an economic renaissance. one that offers real prosperity. real jobs for years to come. but running fast on this road requires something else -- an investment in infrastructure. and that's a subject of discussion i really had with harvard professor ken rogoff, "wall street journal" editorial righter. and i started off by asking how can you convince lawmakers that infrastructure money is well spent and how can you insure that the money is in fact well spent? >> i think you have to have firm regulatory oversight. it's not something you can just spend the money and walk away from. but there are the electricity grid, water, aging bridges, there's so many things, hardening our cyberinfrastructure. against terrorist attacks. many

of technology, new and improved bike racks, including the fact that people are starting to ride slightly more expensive bicycles than just the $10 rotterdam-type bicycle. with that, because it make thems feel more comfortable or safety people want assurance that those bicycle racks are safe. just like with your car, you don't want it falling over when someone else pulls their bike out. that there is a little bit of understanding of what it takes to park a bike properly and safely and keep it from being stolen. >> miss rodgers? >> commissioner sugaya? >> thank you. this isn't on this subject, but since it's about bicycles, maybe the question is more directed towards mta or the bicycle coalition, but has there been any thinking and i don't though this. i asked this question the other day and they said there was also legislation, but is there any discussion about legislating bicycle licenses for individuals buying bicycles? when i was a young kid riding a bicycle, i had it take my bike to the police department and get a license. it was put on there with a little metal plate and clamped on th

? >> if you look at technology, there is some technology we could look at and we are always in this dialogue -- is there some new mechanism we could put forward. one of the challenges is consumers will often talk about two or three different accounts on the front page of the letter. we cannot send bank of america information about citigroup or another lender. we need to parse before the letter. one of the legal issues we have, as a matter of law, is how to unpacked important communications sowed data can be sent from one party to another if it will advance the ball beyond the coating systems we have today. we think we are getting it right. most of the letters come in and they said that is not my account or they say i net -- i never missed a 30-day payment. more consumers are choosing to dispute directly with their lender. >> even if the lender is not the furniture? >> lender would be the furniture. through the fact act, a push for the idea that i should have this right under law. we see more consumers with complicated issues going to the lender to resolve the issue and that's why you will co
that has arisen because of technological change is ring as much of the waste out of health care as possible. workers take home pay suffers by that amount. >> i had health care written down here and that was the elephant in the room we didn't talk about when we talked about government spending right now. i know peter has worked on it really hard. but something that is really sad for me looking forward about the u.s. economy is a lot has been done. i think even morally, it's terrific that americans are going to be covered. but the system hasn't really been rationalized and that is a big drag on the u.s. economy. >> i think there is much more progress that is being made, not just because of policy, but because insurance firms are pushing this way and insurance firms are pushing this way moving towards fee for service payment and moving towards a digatized smarter health care system and i am hopeful, actually, more hopeful than conventional wisdom, i want to be clear about that. by 2020, we're in a much better place on health care value than we are today. glenn agrees with that. >> i think we n

about technology is take handheld spirit of free markets are about turning scarcity into abundance that is something government cannot do. 30 years ago the cell phone was the big issue box at about 30, 40 minutes of battery life has $3995. >> you have one? >> no, i use a landline. but the amazing thing is that the government got involved it would still be his biggest issue box, maybe 15 minutes of battery life as $9995 be railing against greedy cell phone makers. so today there's 5 billion in the world. have a cell phone to your banking, medical service. they become handheld computers. so the simple ones are virtually giveaways with the $3995. constant creativity and innovation. just give me one other example, the high-tech example of cell phones. even simple things. you go to a starbucks or similar coffeeshop a 12-ounce, 16-ounce, 20-ounce cups of coffee. he noticed the list at the same size that they don't have three different kinds of inventory? those little things constantly happen in this kind of an economy that's what we seek to preserve. that is morality, little things got a

and technology, what beyond that produces peace? >> there are two things. first, it is a matter of national policy. we decide after a time to end wars the way we've ended the war in iraq and will soon end the war in afghanistan. we decide that, at certain times, the threat to other people is so grave that it endangers the general peace in the world, we've got to act, as we must act right now to try to end the civil war in syria, where 40,000 people have died. we can't just stay at home. >> axelrod: do you think people look at the notion of peace and say, "look, peace is wonderful, it's noble, it's terrific for us to aspire to, but i'll talk to you about peace after i feel safe." >> it's not a binary choice, peace or security. you have to have both. but a great society will always remind itself that in the final analysis, our greatness will be determined by whether or not we're striving for peace. that's why we rate lincoln and washington and martin luther king and franklin delano roosevelt as among the greatest leaders we ever had, because they all stood for peace especially when times were

gap as we get better technologically, captain flaherty in preparation for our last meeting with the commission on status of women saw that the stats for db numbers, she felt they were a bit low. she discovered the reporting was for the fiscal year, she got with director giffin and looked at them for the calendar year and indeed they were low. i ordered an immediate audit for all of our numbers and we discovered when we changed over approximately 8,000 police reports hadn't been scanned in for purposes of comstat. that obviously is going to click up our year to date statistics but at least they will be accurate. a lot of these reports were closed cases, warrants, things like that, not necessary of any follow-up but not wanting to risk anything, captain flaherty did an audit of the 106 cases that hadn't been scanned in that would have been svu cases, all had been followed up on, one needed specifically to be assigned and that's been taken so we don't have anything that slipped through the cracks. however, you will notice when you see the final year to date stats for 2012

been bugging him about moral hazard of very technological issue. when he came up to washington, he was a policy wonk too. and that's why the bush institute, i think, has been founded, because president bush has had a curiosity about economics throughout his life x it's benefited us all. basically, what we have to do is just stop doing the wrong things, and there are three things in my chapter that i talk about that we could do to really turn the country around. the first is to get tax policy right, we're not doing it. right now we're the highest corporate tax country in the developed world, we're the third highest on earth. there are two countries that are less friendly for new businesses than the u.s. on earth, that's guyana and the congo.
